Rock a Bye Baby

The arrival of a new family member can be a very exciting and nerve racking experience. Especially when that new family member is a new baby. Anxious parents will go running around making sure everything is baby proof, reading up on what to purchase for their new baby, researching good doctors for their new baby. It can be a very stressful time for parents.

One of the major problems that I experienced in preparation of my new little one was purchasing a baby crib bedding set. I went to so many stores and researched so many online store for the perfect one. After all I wanted to get the best set that will express the personality and theme that I was trying to achieve in my new daughter’s nursery.

Most of the baby crib bedding set I saw were very common and kept repeating in the stores. You will be surprised at the lack of collection that is out there. I was very disappointed and settle for the one that had the least pink in it. I was looking at a baby crib bedding set that had a red theme or design to it, and there was absolutely nothing out there. I feel that companies should provide a better selection or give us an option to custom create a baby crib bedding set.

Baby crib bedding set is expensive. So are the accessories that come along with it. For example the baby mobile is not included. Nor was the hamper or the diaper holder. Also they are not inter-changeable, meaning you are meant to buy it once. If you get tired of the theme and decide to go purchase a different one then you must go and match the hamper, diaper holder and the mobile all over again thus ending up spending a fortune again.

Also what if your baby spits up or the diaper leaks on to the bed sheet? The baby crib bedding set comes with just one fitted sheet. So you will have to wash and dry that one fitted sheet that day if you want your baby to sleep in his/her own crib and not next to you.

For my next baby I will design my own baby crib bedding set and see if I can create something unique that will reflect my taste.

Baby Walkers Review

It’s common for people to look for baby walker reviews in an effort to find which walker provides the most benefit, stimulation and safety for their child. Baby walker manufactures work to create options that provide safety for children and although strides have been made baby walkers are still the major causes of injuries for children 5 – 16 months, with the majority being burns and falling. Burns happen from hot liquids being left within reach, such as a coffee table or kitchen counter low enough for them to reach. The falls most commonly occur from stairs, however also happen from tipping over. Many dental issues within this age group come from injuries sustained from baby walkers.
A new replacement has emerged, the stationary activity center. Many of the perceived benefits with baby walkers can be found with the activity centers. Parents have a place to put the child to give them a break to do other things or simply just rest. The child has toys they can play with that both entertains and stimulates their mind. They also bounce, which gives the child a sense of freedom and excitement. What it isn’t is mobile, no moving around from room to room or place to place which is where children injuries with baby walkers normally occur.
A common issue with both the walker and activity center is the amount of time parents leave children in them. Often, they are used as a babysitter with children spending hours daily in them. What this does is slow both the mental and physical development of children and takes away from the human stimulation and bonding they receive from parents. Children should be limited to no more than 20 minutes at one time in walkers or activity centers. The development implications these children are faced, as a parent if you considering a walker check into a baby walkers review to learn more about the potential trouble it can cause your child.
Overall, the best option is to either use a stationary activity center or nothing at all over the use of baby walkers. Baby walker injuries and development are a serious issue and concern; medical professionals speak out about these concerns regularly. There is just too much potential loss or damage your child faces that any gains just is not real. Besides, never putting your child in on in the first place will keep them from ever knowing what they may have missed out on!

Stress and Your Baby

Pregnancy can be a stressful time for many expectant mothers. Many pregnant women worry about how they are going to take care of the baby, financial difficulties, health problems or family issues. It’s hard not to worry about what life is going to be like after the baby is born! It’s important to remember that a mother’s stress can and does affect her unborn baby.

This is because stress hormones in mother’s bloodstream are passed onto baby unknowingly. When mom gets stressed out, so does the baby inside her. Unfortunately, stress can be devastating to a child’s growth and development!

Taking steps to reduce stress during pregnancy will drastically improve the health of the mother and her baby. The first step to reducing stress is to pinpoint exactly what’s causing it. For example, if you are forced to keep up too many of your usual responsibilities during your pregnancy, such as employment, housework, paying bills and more, ask for help! Communicate with your partner about sharing these responsibilities for the sake of your child’s well being. Be sure not to overstrain yourself during your pregnancy.

Meditation is another amazing way to relieve stress, whether you’re pregnant or not! Meditation helps you focus your thoughts and put your mind at ease. It takes a bit of practice to learn, but it is well worth the effort. EFT is another option. EFT stands for “Emotional Freedom Techniques” and involves tapping certain points on your body and repeating affirmations.

Relieving stress certainly doesn’t need to be complicated. Reading books or magazines, taking a relaxing bath and getting massages can really make you feel great and cut down on your stress level. Pregnancy is also a great time to start a new hobby. If you’ve always wanted to start scrapbooking, start a baby book for your son or daughter! If learning to sew is one of your goals, try making baby clothes or a quilt for baby’s crib.

No matter which method you choose to reduce your stress level, remember that you’re making an amazing decision by taking steps for your child’s health and well being. You’re already a great mom!

Baby Car Seat Cover

When choosing the best car seat cover, you need to make sure that the seat will be the best one so that you can protect your child from injury as you drive around. Baby car seat covers, even the inexpensive ones have all undergone the same federal crash test before it is released in the market. The choice that a parent now needs to do is to get the seat that will fit for their type of vehicle and will support their child in case of an accident.

Baby car seat covers can save the life of your child when installed properly in your vehicle. It is important before buying the seat to make sure that you can install the baby seat cover properly in the seat of your vehicle. Read the manual carefully so that you follow the instructions and safety measures in properly installing the seat to your vehicle. Most stores will allow you to test baby car seat cover with a dummy baby seat cover and allow you to check if it will fit the seat of your vehicle with the supervision of one of their employees. If the store does not have a test baby car seat cover, check the store’s return policy so that you can return it if in case it does not fit your vehicle’s seat. One way to check if the seat is properly installed to the seat of your vehicle is that is does not wiggle more than an inch when you wiggle the seat from side to side.

Also make sure that the seat will fit your child. Most seats can hold weights up to 20lbs. for infant car seats. The car seat should have an inch or more allowance from the top to the head of your infant for rear facing car seats, and for front facing car seats, the allowance is the top of your child’s ears should be below the top of the seat.

Never buy accessories that did not come together with the baby car seat cover. These accessories may void the warranty of the seat when used together with the seat. These accessories also may not have been tested together with the baby car seat cover so it may not be safe for use.

When buying used seats make sure that you check if there have been any alterations made on the seat. Also check if these used seats have been part of any market product recalls in the past before purchase. If you cannot get an accurate history of the used seat, best not to buy it. Used seats that may have survived a car crash may not survive a second crash and may put the life of your child in danger. Registering the new seat will allow manufacturers to contact you if in case of any product recalls.

“Slinging” Your Baby

Babies have been carried since babies have been born, yet in our culture, babies are carried in their car seats (what some call “plastic buckets”). Wouldn’t it be nice to bring our babies close again? To remove the foot-wide space of plastic and embrace the tenderness that is our child? All too soon, those babies grow up and are gone; hold them tight while you can.

The way most of the world carries their children is with a sling. From rebozos in Latin America to the kangas of the Maasai, baby wearing is very much the norm. Our own culture is seeing an increase in baby wearing. Where does someone start who has never worn a baby before?

Many different types of slings exist. Some are simple cloth, others silk (the choice of materials are endless!), some with padded shoulders, some that go on the front of mom or dad with the baby facing in, and others facing outward. Style and comfort can be combined as you find a sling that is tailored just for you. An experienced mom or a specialty store that offers natural supplies for baby can certainly help you out. Women of all shapes and sizes can find the sling that is right for them; the one that doesn’t pinch, cut, or sit unused in the closet.

It can take some time to get used to wearing the sling and even some time for the baby to get used to being in the sling. Practice makes for easy-going days and accomplishing things that you might not otherwise have been able to do. Laundry, shopping, and daily walks become a reality once you hit your stride with the sling. The more you wear the sling, the more you will enjoy it.

Nursing in the sling is a cinch, especially for those that find modesty very important. They afford mom plenty of freedom and time out in the world. Dads love slings, too, and are able to offer mom some time alone if she needs that. When colicky evenings traumatize new parents, a sling can offer the baby some tender swaying and a semblance of the memory of being in the womb. Either parent is able to head to the beach or walk around the block, allowing mom or dad some exercise and head-clearing time.

Many wonder if carrying a baby on one hip or the other is tiring, but most who regularly carry their children find it surprisingly easy; not quite the same as when carrying a baby when they are on the inside, which can be more uncomfortable. The extra weight of the baby is evenly distributed as the sling curls around your back and sides.

Slinging a baby is merely one part of what has become known as Attachment Parenting… a belief that the child’s needs are at least as important (if not more so for a time) than the parent’s needs. AP families are also known to co-sleep, have extended nursing of their babies, child-led toilet learning, and even a concept known as un-schooling (allowing your child to live and learn in life, not in a structured school environment). But others who don’t necessarily ascribe to the complete AP picture can benefit from slinging their babies and might consider a trip to the local sling shop for a fitting.

After all, don’t we all love to be held?

Herrera is a Licensed and Certified Professional Midwife who helps women become closer to their babies through Attachment Parenting, a method of attending to the baby’s needs quickly and often.

Bringing Home Baby

When my husband and I found out that we were expecting, he went a little overboard with the safety precautions. I thought having a company that specializes in mold inspection in Yonkers come and check our home for the dangerous black mold that causes disease was a bit extreme, but he was committed to making sure our home was as safe as possible for our little one.

To tell the truth, because we had not noticed any signs of mold around the house, I thought he was really being silly. I was sure that if mold was growing in our home, we would see something. I checked under the sinks and even in the basement for some sign of mold, but found nothing. I also assumed that any mold would give the house a musty smell. Both of my assumptions were wrong. I was glad we had a company with experience in mold inspection in Yonkers come out. They found several patches of dangerous black mold growing in the spaces between our walls. They explained to me the many health risks of black mold – it can even cause disease.

The inspectors were able to pinpoint several locations were the mold was growing and even helped us to determine why. Mold needs a dark, damp, cool environment to grow. The fact that mold was growing in our walls meant there was some sort of leak in the house that was causing the moisture. We were able to track down a minor plumbing problem on the second floor. The very slow leak was dripping onto the floor boards and down into the wall space.

Hiring a company that specializes in mold inspection in Yonkers allowed us to remove the dangerous and disease causing mold before we brought home our baby. I am so happy my husband insisted on it.

Jewish Baby Gifts

The present of a new life is a special gift to any family no matter what the religious beliefs, but it is always nice to give something that ties in with the beliefs of the family and carries on the traditions in which the child will be brought up. Traditionally, having children is seen as a religious obligation as well as a joyful experience so it is a time of celebration as well as prayer. There are many traditonal Jewish baby gifts that are given to Jewish babies and include Hamsas, Mezuzahs, dreidels, lilah tov lights, kiddush cups and tzedakah boxes. I will be discussing the significance of each of these in the following paragraphs.

Hamsa is a symbol that is used in the Jewish culture and is usually in the shape of a hand. The hand is usually depicted with the five fingers outstretched, but can also be seen with the forefinger and the third finger together and the ring finger and the little finger together to form the Hebrew letter “shin” and depict the same position of the Cohen’s fingers when he is blessing the congregation. According to Jewish legend, the Hamsa is the Hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses. It is also referred to as the Hand of God. It is thought to possess magical powers of protection, happiness and prosperity. Hamsa pacifier holders make wonderful baby gifts.

On the doorpost of most Jewish homes you will see a Mezuzah. This is a small container that usually contains a parchment scroll that is handwritten with the words of the Shema on one side and a name of God on the back. Upon entering the home the mezuzah is touched and the fingers that touched it are kissed to remind us that we should always follow God’s commandments. A popular Jewish baby gift is a Noah’s Ark or other soft toy with a Mezuzah on it.

Tzedakah boxes are a popular gift for babies. Tzedakah means charity or justice. It is treating others the way that you would want to be treated. The tzedakah box usually ehibits the eight different levels of charity; giving, but not being happy about it, giving less than you should, giving only when asked, giving directly to the poor so that both know each other, giving with the poor knowing who gave the gift but the giver does not know who receives it, giving so that the giver knows but the recipient does not, giving anonymously to a tzedakah fund and, last, giving to help keep another person from becoming poor by contributing to their education or teaching them a trade.

Kiddush is a prayer of thanksgiving and reminds all to keep the Sabbath day. This is a traditional prayer and is done with wine and bread to give thanks to God for all of his blessings.

Lilah Tov means good night and many popular baby gifts are imprinted with the words. Night lights are extremely popular as well as blankets and night gowns. These items are very popular with people searching for Jewish baby gifts.

The dreidel is a popular toy for girls and boys. It is usually played with at Hanukkah. It has hebrew letters on each side (nun, gimel, hei and shin) which put together are the acronym for Nes Gadol Haya Sham meaning “a great miracle happened there”.

Jewish baby gifts is dedicated to give you valuable information to help you make out a decision what to give to a child. Find the best shower gift like a card, a tractor for a boy, graco infant car seat accessories, cover seats, or even sewing pattern so you can knit it so it would mean more special.

Baby Home Safety

Although you won’t need to make sure that your home is childproof after you bring your new born home. As soon as they are at an advanced stage then you will need to start thinking about making baby home safety improvements that will ensure that they don’t come to any harm.

When it comes to making improvements to your home to protect your baby it is a good idea to spend time walking around your home viewing it from the same position that your baby would. So it is actually a sensible idea to get down on your hands and knees and see what items of furniture or electrical equipment could prove a hazard to your baby as they begin to crawl and then take their first steps.

After wandering around your home several times now is when you need to start making the necessary baby home safety improvements. For example when it comes to electrical cables if you can use cable tidy’s to put them out of your baby’s reach. Plus for any electrical sockets which are not being used get some covers for these.

As for cupboards in your home make sure that you fit all of these with special catches that allow them to be opened a small distance. But won’t open enough allow your child to put their hand and arm inside or to actually crawl into them. Also it is advisable that all products that are used for keeping your home clean are placed in cupboards that are well out of your child’s reach.

Another thing that you should do when it comes to your baby beginning to crawl around the home is fit safety gates to places that you don’t want your child to have access to. So place one at the base of the stairs and also into any rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.
